A Message from the Executive Director

Welcome to the Charles County Public Library!

Public libraries are going through a period of transition; libraries today are less about what we have for people and more about what we do for people by creating opportunities to engage, discover, and learn. We are moving away from simply providing a warehouse of books to providing a place to be; both physically and virtually.

We are honored to be a trusted source for information, helping our community navigate through the overwhelming amount of information available to them, regardless of format: book, website, database, audio/video file, etc. We are also a place for community gathering, a neutral place for community conversations that allows for all viewpoints to be heard. We are a center for job seekers to get help with job searches and resume writing, and we even hold hiring events at the library.

As an integral part of community education, we hold many classes on everything from early literacy to coding to Microsoft Office applications. Libraries provide space for crafting, book talks, computer use, story times, gaming events, content creation, business meetings and much more. The possibilities are endless!

So come on in! The library has a place just for you and we are happy to serve you!
